Not the greatest example of a ghost sign or of tile typography, but the “R” is interesting. It reminds me of the arrow in the FedEx logo. Found at 9th and Race, where I’m guessing the building was once a Ford car dealership. Anyone know?

  1. I don’t know for sure, but there were some early car dealers on Race from 9th to 12th, usually in two-story buildings with plate glass showroom windows on the second floor.
